No blogging – it must be holiday club time!

At Emmanuel Westbury, we’re almost at the end this year’s Summer holiday club – Mission: Rescue! (the last installment will be this Sunday afternoon 1-5pm at Red Maids’ and will be open to all). It was great to end yesterday by thinking about God’s ultimate rescue mission – accomplished not by the blood of a lamb like in Exodus, but by the blood…

How to set about killing sin in the heart

“This is a discipline that every Christian has to wake up to right at the beginning of the Christian life, and continue with as long as we are in this world at all.” J.I. Packer.

You can listen…

When Things are BIG…

Right now, these things are big in my place of work: Gender Neutral Pricing Legislation. Stability of the test environment for Release 11. 2013/14 Business as Usual budget and headcount planning. Faulty air conditioning. All very big things. In fact so big, that there’s a whole bunch of people, myself included who spend all week, every week talking and worrying about these…
